    So far I replaced a bunch of hoses, injector seals, throttle cable, shifter bushing, misc. interior upgrades such as bt radio deck, new shifter leather boots, etc... trying to find a new Speedo cable currently does not work. I just put newer gen wheels on it but still running 31’s. Today I plan on finishing the fat bob 2” lift install which consists of new coils bj spacers and shocks. I’ll try and post some better pictures later. If anyone has any suggestions on things I should do that I havnt thought of I’d greatly appreciate it.

    The body looks straight and the patina perfectly represents 20 years of outdoor living. Leave that part alone. imo
    Looks like a great project truck. Keep us posted. :thumbsup:

    It seems a bit more than 2 inches of lift to me but I am only running 31s currently either way very happy with the fat bob kit thinking 33s will look slick

    Ended up finding wheels close by with the correct offset to clear the upper control arms (they were rubbing after installing bjs). Today I’ll be installing a new radio antenna and trying to figure out a short I discovered when trying to fix the cigarette lighter dealy. Also trying to find a couple 4 inch speakers locally the front speakers are blown out.
